Observing 'Eed Al-Adhha - IslamWeb. by Taamas111 (m): 5:16pm on January 13

Is it a Sunnah not to cut the nails and beard
for ten days if the person is sacrificing an
animal on his behalf on 'Eed al- Adhha?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

Everyone who intends to offer a sacrifice has
to refrain from clipping nails and cutting
hair after beginning the first ten days of
Thul-Hijjah. It is forbidden for such a person
to cut his hair or nails. The majority of the
Muslim scholars believe that it is merely
detestable for the Hadeeth narrated by Umm
Salamah, may Allah be pleased with her, that
the Prophet said: "When the first ten
days of Thul-Hijjah starts, one who intends to
offer a sacrifice should not have his hair cut
or his nails trimmed, till he/she has offered
his/her sacrifice" . [Muslim] It is also
reported in a narration that he should not
remove any of his skin.

The wisdom behind the above ruling is for all
the parts of body to remain freed from the
However, if one cuts his/her hair or nails he/
she has to ask forgiveness of Allah only and
has to pay no expiation.

Allah knows best.
